Tall Ships of Nova Scotia

Tall ships in Port Hawkesbury.

Seven or eight of the Tall Ships that are visiting several ports in Nova Scotia this summer were docked in Port Hawkesbury for a couple of days this past week.  Dan and I went down to the Pier and viewed them from a distance.  We had shopping to do and didn't take time to go aboard any of the vessels. We had already seen the fleet last weekend in Halifax. There was a crowd down at the waterfront taking in the festivities, and  everyone seemed to be having fun, especially the children.

Theodore Too the Tugboat was there.

There were train rides and games for the children.

Train rides for children on the pirate express.

We saw the ships when we were in Halifax last weekend. 
The Eagle.
My favorite was the US Coastguard vessel,  the Eagle.
The Eagle was taken as a war prize by the United States from the Germans following World War II.
